G’day VFRW, I just bought myself an excellent condition ‘99 VFR800 and thought I’d join this forum. I had been riding my Rvf400 for some time, and although I love that bike (still got her) it is somewhat limited....no tank range and a piece of cardboard for a seat haha. Although it can slice up the twisties nicely. It got me thinking of what comfy, sporty bike I might like. Seeing as I’m a Honda fan and I wanted to keep it that way, I started looking for a Viffer. It didn’t take long to find an excellent condition ‘99 in red. My kinda colour. So I spoke to the gent on the phone, it was a bike I could tell he looked after and he seemed to be quite the Honda fan himself. Only problem was I didn’t quite have the coin. Not to worry, this man didn’t want to sell it to just anybody and wasn’t in a rush, so he held onto it whilst I gathered the remaining funds. I couldn’t believe my luck. Once I had transferred the remaining money he sent it to me via road train. Oh yeah, I hadn’t even seen the bike in person. (A risk I was willing to take). But I can tell you it didn’t disappoint! After 2 weeks of watching the clock I went and picked her up. And my oh my, it was better than I thought. A low km, unmolested beauty. It has a couple of tasteful goodies, the best is the exhaust, but also Helibars, a touring screen and Ventura rack. I plan to spice it up a tad, but nothing dramatic. Just some braided lines, a PC3 and a dyno tune. That’s a while off for now. Until then I’m just going to ride the hell outta her and listen to that V4 howl!
